Sun up, sun down …

Well, I was out riding my bike as the sun was coming up this morning (41km ride including 3 laps of the hilly circuit that Deb and I run most Mondays) and was out running as the sun was going down (6km loop around home @ 5:13 min/km).

The run was to try out a new purchase I got today (early birthday present). I’d seen the 2XU Active Running Vest advertised in the “Vested Interest” article in the latest Runner’s World magazine. I love 2XU gear. It was advertised as $115 in RW, but I picked mine up at the DFO South Wharf store for $40 so was very happy with that.

It is technical fabric, nice and snug with vents for added breathability. It also has a few convenient little zipped pockets. I think it might make it easier to get out on the chilly mornings!

    I finally relented and bought winter riding gear this year (after 3 winters of getting by -just)

    Got a BMC long sleeve fleecy jersey, a Louis Garneau membrane jacket, a Nalini thermal undervest and Pearl Izumi gloves – no more frozen fingers. Michelle & I did a cruisy 90kms yesterday – sunny but cold.
    It is a shame that Kinglake is the same weekend as the Fruitloop Ride in Shepparton … very annoying !!!!

    Enjoy the Garmin when you get it … 🙂
